  1. Add more/better gamification

    I feel that adding more gamification elements i.e. badges will help increase user engagment and create a more social atmostphere.

    Gamification is a growing trend in the app marketplace and will be instantly recoginizable to users, however, it also plays an important role in creating engagment.

    A recent study revealed that gamification increases the conversation of anonymous users to regesitered users by 50%, furthermore adding gamification increases time spent in app by 370% and increases clicks by as much as 600%.

    75 million Americans play games on their mobile devices, concurrently of the time they spend on the internet, on…

      • Add more events to the Apps Feed

        In order to foster viral effects in the community, we should augment the Apps Feed with more relevant events.
        My proposal would be to incorporate Follow, Thank, Share and Relist as events.
        Examples:
        1) user X is now following user Y
        2) user X thanked collection X
        3) user X shared collection/app X
        4) user X relisted app X

        • Trending Apps List

          Not sure how easy this is but it would be cool to have a list of actually trending apps, i.e. apps that are being most added to lists that day/hour/minute rather than just an overall tracker

          • Additional search features

            I'm loving the app so far. The idea of lists that can rated and reviewed by the community is great. It has been executed beautifully.
            There are a couple of performance issues and graphical glitches I've noticed, but I'm sure you'll have these ironed out by the time it leaves beta.
            Would it be possible to add some additional search features in the search option? I'm thinking language, location, with livetile etc. Also an ability to sort by order of rating, number of reviews etc.

            • I want to select on the startscreen my own lists of interests

              Now there is no cutom made startscreen.
              Every user gets the same start screen.
              IMy suggestion is to make a slection yourself what you like to see or like to hide.

                I hope there will be a country selector, so I can see the list of my country apps first.

                  • Add some added search-ability to the platform via Hashtags

                    1) The first thing I think would help is to add some added search-ability to the platform. As it stands now the search seems to be directly related to the title of the list and searching beyond a one word entry usually causes the app to come back with nothing. I think this issue can be resolved with hash-tagging for a few reasons. First most users of social networks are probably already familiar with how hashtags work, making the learning curve far easier. The second reason is when I complete my list I can choose to tag it multiple times…

                    • Add Push Notifications to let me know when I get thanks or follows

                      use a push notification of some kind letting a user know that they have been followed/thanked and ask the user if they would like to check out the other users page or lists. I think this will lead to a follow back movement similar to twitter where users reciprocate follows by following back followers. I think a push notification/prompt when opening/live tile update (any or all would work) stating “X just followed you, you should check out there page and follow them back” then give them a go-to and no thanks option would help in finding new users to follow…

                      • Simplify App Feed

                        I think the apps feed is a great service but it gives me way too much information. It shows every single app that someone adds to a given list and unfortunately this causes the feed to get very long. For example if someone creates a new list with 30 apps my feed becomes 30 apps longer which buries other users I follow down the list essentially making it impossible to stay informed about all the users I follow. I think it would be helpful if the feed simply showed when someone added or updated a list and it gives me…

                                  • add feed for new users and new app lists

                                    Is it possible to add “User Feed”, not only showing what new apps being created, but also new “app List”, new “users”, and giving users to choose between new “apps”, “app lists” and “users”. I think after App Social being live for a while, people will be thirsty for more refreshment in the app, any possible NEW things, not only just newly added apps. Because new added apps could be already old for some users.

                                    If we can enrich this feed page, then it’ll be worthy to be made the home page/landing page, the one user will see once opening…

                                      I am not sure as to the technical feasibility of this, but if it could be done it would provide an additional user touch point that could direct them back into the app.

                                        we would need to become a service like Facebook and twitter and MSFT would need to integrate us into the WP platform. Given that there are a lot of other global and regional socialnetworks to integrate (4sq, vkontacte) I think we are quite low on that priority as of now…also the benefit would not be huge IMO
